Iwin-Lindsay-HillLindsay Hill is the SRA in Irwin Hall and is a senior biomedical engineering major from Kansas City, Mo. She enjoys reading, writing poetry, listening to music and singing. She chose Baker because it has a small campus, and the student-to-teacher ratio is relatively small. She likes being an SRA because she likes getting to know the residents and helping the freshmen.

Irwin-Liz-JordanHannah "Liz" Jordan is a senior art history and business major, who is involved in the BU cross country team, BRaV, and FCA. She is from Leavenworth, Kan., and decided to come to Baker because the first time she stepped on campus, she felt like she was at home. Liz enjoys reading, traveling and watching movies in her spare time. She can't wait to get to know all of her residents.

Irwin-Callie-BrabenderCallie Brabender is a sophomore elementary education major from Lawrence, Kan. She came to Baker because of the warm, intimate atmosphere. Callie is very serious about her studies and likes fruit snacks and meeting new people.



Irwin-Denesha-JonesDenesha Jones is a junior sociology major from St. Louis, Mo., with a love for chocolate and the color orange. She is an awesome cheerleader and an even better RA who chose Baker for its campus, its diversity and its inviting faculty and staff. When Denesha isn't cheering for one of Baker's many sports teams, she can often be found helping people and making residents feel more comfortable while at Baker.
